So. That happened.

In spite of some of Auggie's lingering feelings of awkwardness, he's still a regular visitor at the Stark household. Tony keeps asking him over to consult on pieces of code, or to beta-test bits of hardware, and he usually ends up staying a night or two, up late listening to music with Sherlock or soaking in the California warmth outside.

(Staying away from Milliways too long makes him slightly antsy -- what if his door unlocks and he doesn't notice? -- but the Stark household is a good deal more stable than the bar.)

Tonight, Sherlock is in his workroom playing Pink Floyd on the violin. He does that sometimes. It has been established by now that if his door is open, he does not mind interruptions. Or audiences.

Auggie was on his way up to his room when he heard the violin drifting down the stairs and decided to detour up. He has something to ask Sherlock about, in any case.

When he reaches the room, he turns off the laser cane and leans against the open door to listen, grinning.

"Oh, yes. It's one of my favourites."

"Love to hear it sometime."

He comes into the room, turning on the cane to help him find the couch.

Great. Deja vu all over again.

He doesn't have to listen carefully to know what's going on, but after about thirty seconds, he realizes that he is anyway.

"Jesus--"

No and no and no. He turns and strides for his room, fast enough that he almost overshoots it. He is not thinking about Sherlock and Tony in flagrante, he is not thinking about their hands and their chests, He is not thinking about what Tony (or Sherlock?) must be doing to make Sherlock (no, Tony) make that exact breathless sound, he is fucking not.

He's let himself get way too comfortable here. Time to pack up and head back to Milliways, shifting walls and waitrats be damned.
